Acquiring a burn registration number from the Province does not replace the requirement to obtain a burn permit from the District of Coldstream. The BC Wildfire Service does not issue permits for burns. It is the responsibility of the person conducting the burn to acquire a burn permit from the District of Coldstream and to follow the requirements of the District of Coldstream Fire Protection Bylaw No. 1712, 2018.
